Meeting Description:

Biolinguistics is concerned with exploring the basic properties of the language
faculty, how it matures in the individual, how it is put to use in thought and
action (including communication), what brain circuits may implement it, and 
how it emerged in the human species. In asking these questions, biolinguists 
try to determine which components of the brain are unique to language, as 
opposed to shared with other cognitive domains such as music and 
mathematics, and especially those that also seem unique to humans. If, as 
seems reasonable to suppose, our linguistic capacity is both uniquely human 
and, in part, uniquely comprised of language-specific mechanisms, significant 
conceptual and empirical issues arise concerning its evolution, form, 
maturation, and function. 

Call For Papers

We encourage submissions of abstracts that touch on any of the issues listed
above, or any other that contributes to our understanding of the biological
foundations of the language faculty. Of special interest are contributions that
bring biological considerations to bear on linguistic theorizing.

The Biolinguistic Capacity is a workshop intended for the 44th Annual Meeting of
the Societas Linguistica Europaea (http://sle2011.cilap.es). Since we will need
to submit a proposal with a preliminary list of speakers by November 15, we 
need preliminary titles and mini-abstracts (3-5 sentences) from potentially
interested participants. The deadline for these is Sunday, November 14, 2010.
Please note that expressing an interest in participation by sending us a title
and mini-abstract is not binding. The final deadline for regular abstracts, to
be submitted via the conference site, is January 15, 2011. We will send
interested participants a reminder about this, and we will of course also let
them know, by mid-December, whether the workshop was accepted.
